Positive Reviews

Excellent rates

Guests who are travelling on a tight budget find the room rate suits their pockets in a good way here. They think the price/quality ratio is fair, and are glad they don't have to dig too deep for this vacation.

Beautiful beach location

Peace and tranquillity are in abundance at this resort. Guests love that the beach is just steps away, and it's so quiet and serene too. The fact that it's in a cove makes for calm waters and a private setting which is exactly what travellers say they are looking for.

Staff are pleasant

The kind and hospitable staff is the reason why guests say it's not too long before they feel more like friends than guests. They acknowledge the long hours of dedication from the staff, and appreciate all their efforts.

Negative Reviews

Lacking hot water

There's not always a plentiful supply of hot water at the resort. Guests get particularly frustrated after a long day spent at the beach, to have to come back to an unexciting cold shower.

Quite a distance to walk

It seems there's a bit of a walk from the resort to the main road before there's any chance of finding a ride to town. Guests mention that the steep hill takes quite a bit of strength and a reasonable level of fitness to negotiate.

Can do with a little TLC

Overall, visitors think it may be time for a bit of a facelift. They feel the resort is starting to show signs of ageing, and can do with some much-needed maintenance. The bathrooms are mentioned quite often for their loose and leaking taps, as well as their old-fashioned look.
